There are certain things in the world you can only do by helicopter.  Here's my list of the top helicopter thrills.


Bungee Jumping in Toronto, Ontario.  Over the Edge aviation offers Bungee Jumping from 1000 AGL.

Helicopter skiing in Blue River, British Columbia.  Wiegele Helicopters offers the ultimate ski lift. 

Vacation Spots

Only accessible by helicopter is Nimmo Bay, British Columbia.


Coastal Helicopters in Belfast Maine offers tours of coastal Maine which can't be duplicated.  Lighthouses, secluded bays, and beautiful scenery will entertain you in this rugged area.

Bravo Aviation, Los Angelas, CA offers Hollywood sightseeing.  Operating from LAX they offer sightseeing opportunities of Santa Monica Beach, celebrity homes, movie studios, downtown LA, the Hollywood sign. 

The stunning sights Maverick Helicopter Tours offers can't be beat.   They offer the grand canyon, the Hoover Dam, or the beauty of the Las Vegas Strip at night.  Or even get married at 2000 feet. 

Era avation's outback tour offers the beautiful landscape of Juneau Alaska.  See a dog sledding camp, the largest rainforest, beautiful mountain scenery, glaciers, and the wildest pristine landscape on the planet.

The natural paradise of Tall Timber Resort in Durango Colorado offers a rush of a different nature.  This air taxi can put you anywhere and provides a back country tour, or picnic in the most peaceful retreat.

Niagra Falls by helicopter is one of the most amazing sights in the world, a 167 foot waterfall at 1 million gallons per minute.  Tours at Skyway Helicopters allows you to "feel" the falls from above, the sound which drowns out the sound of the helicopter. 

Sedona Arizona, the backdrop for more than 75 movies, is an amazing tour. 

A trip to Hawaii would not be complete without a helicopter tour.  Blue Hawaiian Helicopters (Maui) has a fleet of blue helicopters which can take you anywhere including scenes from movies, tropic rain forest, the largest waterfall in the world, the most active volcano in the world.
